Michael Rectenwald has published his article “Secularism” in George Eliot in Context, edited by Margaret Harris and published by Cambridge University Press (2013). Prodigiously learned, alive to the massive social changes of her time, defiant of many Victorian orthodoxies, George Eliot has always challenged her readers. She is at once chronicler and analyst, novelist of nostalgia and monumental thinker. The anthology includes cogent essays on the many contexts – historical, intellectual, political, social, cultural – to her work. Rectenwald’s contribution considers the importance of secularism to George Eliot’s worldview and fiction, in particular tracing the texts and contexts important to her conversion from Christianity, and her expressions of a secularist perspective.
